The man's eyes narrowed. [i "Do you think you are in any position to be naming terms for this, my dear?"]
Alex grit his teeth at the blatantly condescension. [b "What makes you think that you're in control here?"] he snapped in return.
Ari watched the man and said. "I hope you know you can't use guns in this fight."
[b "Are you sure about this?"] Alex's stomach was a tangle of anxiety as they followed behind.
[i "She is the only one who is going to be able to end this. Like you said, we have to trust that she can be the one to rule a country,"] Scott spoke quietly.
Ari kept her eyes fixed on the man and walked slowly out of the room.
Alex crossed the room to reopen the door, staring intently at the enemy.
[i "After you,"] Scott gestured for the two leaders to exit first.
"sounds fun actually." She said and kept her eyes on the man who had ruined her life.
[b "Should we move this outside?"] Alex interjected. [b "Not quite a fair fight in such a compact room. Besides, a fight like this warrants an audience, don't you think?"]
He was hoping if he got them to fight outside, they at least had backup on hand, if they needed.
"if I can't take care of a little roach like you, then I am unfit to rule." She said simply and watched him bristling at his smirk.
Alex froze. [b "Ari..."] he spoke lowly, not liking the turn of events.
[i "Hush, Alex,"] Scott interrupted, resting a hand on his arm. [i "Let her handle it."]
The man's smirk was nauseatingly confident. [i "You sure that's what you want to do, Your Highness? The wise choice?"]
She growled at the man and snarled. "Shut it. I'm tired of hearing your mouth." She pushed Scott out of the way. "Fight me in a duel, one on one."
Alex watched the interaction from the corner of his eye. He couldn't look away from their target, just in case he decided to be an idiot and reach for the gun. He couldn't let him pull the trigger when his brother and future bride were in the line of fire.
[i "Quite the queen you are,"] the man taunted. [i "Already can't keep your subjects in line."]
"I'm just asking you not to get hurt..." She whispered and swallowed. "It would hurt m.... Alex. I don't want that to happen."
The elder brother looked to her. [i "You're a queen. And now my friends are your subjects. My brother is your king. Show me you're worthy of a throne,"] he spoke lowly to her.
"Scott..." Ari hissed worriedly and swallowed. She stepped closer to Scott and watched the older male at the desk. "You don't know what he's capable of..." She warned the Summers male and stood next to him soon.
[b "What are you doing?"] Alex murmured as his brother moved past them to stand in front.
[i "I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you don't know who exactly you're dealing with,"] Scott spoke through gritted teeth. [i "Eighty percent of the people you've tried to capture have been highly trained for combat against enemies more powerful than you can imagine. You think we're scared of your guns? You couldn't even keep us contained. Now we're dispersed around this compound, and you have no control to keep our powers subdued."]
Scott moved a step closer, resting his hands on the edge of the desk. [b "Our arsenal contains a man who can stop any bullet you send his way, and return it right back, two human beasts who can heal themselves faster than you can blink, and a woman who can bring a goddamn hurricane right to your office. You think you have the upper hand? Go ahead and reach for the gun and we'll see who can shoot faster - you or me."]
